Down to the legislation - if the complete lamp unit hasn't been certificated for use with LED it isn't legal to install them for use on road (it is legal to sell LED bulbs in the UK - the offence is carried out by the person installing/using not the vendor) & under the new MOT rules it should fail (if it gets picked up).

If the lamp unit has been certificated with LED then it should be so marked & you would be OK to retrofit LED bulbs.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
